Glenmorangie 18 year old Extremely Rare review


WhiskyRant! review of Glenmorangie 18YO Extremely Rare

This “Extremely Rare” edition from Glenmorangie is a delicate 18 year old single malt. This is like Audrey Hepburn of whiskys, a delicate flower. This is as delicate as it can get, when tasting whisky. Like Holly Golightly, seducing me the way she was luring George Peppard’s character Paul Varjak.

Glenmorangie 18yo Extremely Rare has been matured for 15 years in ex bourbon casks and finished for 3 years in Oloroso sherry casks. A perfect whisky, when you want to enjoy lightly on a summer’s eve. Drops of water makes it even more vulnerable so I won’t recommend that.

Nose: Fruits with floral notes in the softest way ever.

Taste: Caramel with fruity notes. Smooth and floral with hints of perfume of citrus.

Finish: Very, very soft. Almost like no finish at all. Soft candy like this, would have been a better experience with a lingering finish.

Balance: So easy to drink, that you’re having Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Rich with a minimal finish.

Colour: Pale gold
Nose: 22  |  Taste: 20  |  Finish: 19  |  Balance: 21
Overall score: 82

Distillery: Glenmorangie
Region: Highland
ABV: 43%
